Given how awesome the iPad is for such a low price, I now get even more irritated at high cost of Apple laptops. They can clearly make them cheaper if they want to. They just don't want to.

A certain competitor could make work productivity software cheaper if they want to... but then they'd be messing up their cash cow.

The general API access on Google+ has been atrocious. This isn't making it better.
 
You have GOT to be kidding me. The Google Apps Profile transfer tool is available now to move Google+ accounts over for Google Apps users...and it's WOEFULLY inadequate. I'm shocked.

I am agog. It just moves circles and takes a week to do it. I will lose all my posts, comments, everything. Worse yet, authorship info isn't moved either! I CANNOT BELIEVE I WILL NEVER BE RID OF THIS THROWAWAY GMAIL ACCOUNT!!

When the transfer is complete, your circles, blocks, and ignores are copied from the source account to the destination account. Circles in the destination account with the same names are merged. Content from your source account (such as profile information, posts, or comments) is not transferred to the destination account. Similarly, authorship information and Google+ pages that you manage with your source account will not be transferred to the destination account. However, this content, pages, and authorship information still exist in your source account.

+1 and Reshare if you think this is a PROBLEM
To transfer your Google+ circles and other connections between accounts, click Google+ circles transfer tool at Google Takeout. This tool transfers your Google+ circles and connections from a “source”...

C# - to - Objective-C translation:

Begin with C#: object.Method();

Convert the parentheses to brackets: object.Method[];

Move the first bracket to the beginning: [object.Method];

Replace the '.' with a space: [object Method];

Make the first letter lowercase: [object method];

Maybe I can actually use this to get into Hadoop.
There's been a lot of buzz about Hadoop lately, and interest in using it to process extremely large data sets seems to grow day by day. With that in mind, I'm going to show you how to set up a Hadoop ...

This stuff absolutely kills me.  Hadoop streaming is so much less efficient than running native java.  You're having to pipe everything through through stdin and stdout which is ridiculous.  With a framework like Hadoop that has been built to execute code on massive amounts of data (TBs not GBs) running everything through a processing pipe kind of defeats the purpose.  Its makes even less sense because java and C# are soooo similar syntactically, a C# person should have no problems writing natively.  Or you can pipe stuff through javascript? Seriously? So now we need to pipe data through stdout/in to javascript which is running on a C virtual machine? head punch head punch
